Weight: 1200 g         7 reviews
The Gransfors Bruks Froe is a safe alternative to the axe when splitting large pieces of wood. The long blade is placed on top of the wood to be split, while a smaller piece of wood or a mallet is used to 'club' the blade downwards. As used by Ray Mears, this is an efficient way of splitting and shaping, and can also be used to 'steer' your splitting when working with troublesome wood.

Forged in Sweden by the esteemed Gransfors Bruks company, each Froe is finished to an exceptionally high standard and is a tool for professionals and casual outdoorsmen alike. The wooden handle can be removed after use for easy transportation.

  • Cutting edge length: 30 cm
  • Handle length: 44 cm
  • Weight: 1.2 kg
  • Removable handle
  • Gransfors Bruks logo on handle

  Takes a little getting used to and you will need to make a hardwood mallet to go with it but very effective tool for shingles and splitting - extraordinarily easy to sharpen - a bit niche and you can make do with other tools but this does save a lot of work on certain tasks

  I was disappointed with this tool. Gransfors Bruks seem to have such a good reputation. The upper edge (rectangular spine) of this froe had a 4' section that had a wave in it which transferred to the cutting edge. When they ground the edge they put the wave back in. Really bad quality control. I'm surprised. The cost of returning it back to England from California USA seemed crazy. A moment spent inspecting each item might be a good idea.

  Really nice quality item - as you would expect from Gransfors Bruks. Not cheap but an extremely capable wood splitter with fingers etc well out of the way!

  Waited along time to get this and not disappointed; great blade and steel and weight. Comes in two pieces and you knock it together. Seems like it would come apart again for travel pretty easily. Great tool can't wait to use this.

  First class service, well priced. The blade is very sharp and the way it is shaped makes splitting very easy. I am pleased with this purchase.
